The Black Death by CatCouch The Black Death by CatCouch
My Undead entry for the Truth Make Ugly contest. Black smoke and tar spews forth from the undead destroying all life in it's path.

I added some more detail to the undead figure since why not, there's still time left for the contest.

How I made this piece

I'm both scared and amazed at the same time! :D
It's a very dark and creepy drawing, isn't it?
But I like your style and the subject  of that Picture.
Well done!

Indeed, it is pretty dark. One person below pointed out there is a form of bubonic plague that is affecting wildlife in the american west. That gave this piece a whole new meaning.

Working on those trees was the best part, they came together as smooth as peanut butter. The lighting, however, took some messing around with.


Thanks~

Thats well done.   I would like to see a version without the person / shadow in the middle,  only the animals left. Would be a cool poster :)

CatCouch Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks! You know, it might look pretty cool with just the animals. Maybe add in a few birds to replicate the movement of the arms.

Actually as it turns out there is a form of bubonic plague that is affecting wildlife in the american west, so this picture is actually very representative.

Whoa, that's pretty interesting. It looks like NPR ran a story on it. It certainly paints this picture in a different light. Thanks for telling me.
